Starting out my edible garden

I've been very busy lately with lots of stuffs to finish at the office that's why I am getting so little time for my online store and for my blog too. My favorite form of relaxation of course is gardening. It renews all my burned out cells, no matter how weedy it has been since it is our wet season.

Anyway, since I'd like to fill my stomach with more organic stuffs, I feel that an edible garden won't be a bad idea. I still have no place right now for my "real" edible garden so I'm just letting my few edible plants fit in with my ornaments.

This are my onions beside the ornamental plants.

I made a mistake of planting the whole garlic bulb when I should have broke it apart and planted each clove instead. Anyway, I wanna see what will happen, if this would still work.

Got some hot chilli peppers too. I have not transplanted some of my bell peppers yet.

Some of my tomatoes are growing well too and it is about to give me some yummy organic fruits soon.

My Guyabano (Soursop) tree is fruiting for the first time.

 These are my grand harvest. The tasty avocados and these sweet Pomelos. These trees except for the Avocados are all planted from seeds, they came from those we have eaten wherein we just threw the seeds outside then I just transplant it when I see something that does not look like a weed. We also have big Mango and Malunggay (Moringa) trees inside the yard.

Well, this will do for now. I hope one day my husband and I can build that big dream house with the most spacious yard for garden and farmlet.

I want to rest early today since I'm a bit tired. I also have photos of some of my ornamental plants that I'd like to share.

As I have always read it from the gardening lovers, to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
Well, I must say I really do.


  1. So beautiful, Lei! There is nothing better than fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden! :)

  2. Food and beauty, what more could you want from a garden? Looks like you are doing a wonderful job on this, dear. I have not heard of half of your fruits and veg before and some of the onrnamentals look so exotic. Hope you get some time to rest and recover and I hope you ultimately get that house and yard to make it just as beautiful as this :) xoxo
